New York and the genealogy of jazz

Swing Machine Orchestra

Opening concert for the 'Genealogies of Art' exhibition


Wednesday, 26 Feb. 2020
MPM Auditorium | 7pm

Swing Machine Orchestra, "the first swing string orchestra", will be performing for the opening of the exhibition Genealogies of art, or the history of art as visual art , with their show New York and the Genealogy of Jazz. They will take us on a trip through the Golden Age of swing, performing works by Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Louis Prima and Scott Joplin. This unique, genuine and crazy group brings together twelve musicians and dancers from different countries - Cuba, Honduras, Argentina and Spain – so we can dance to the frenzied rhythms of the 1930s.
 
This singular company comprises 5 violins, 2 violas, 2 violoncellos, a bass, percussion and a tap dancer. It is an original idea of violinists Raúl Márquez and Suso Moreno.
